Happy End of the World Day! If you're reading this, the predicted Mayan apocalypse did not occur and you can continue enjoying the holiday festivities with one less thing to worry about. However, your intrepid MacLife.com news recap reporter will be taking a much-needed hiatus over the next two weeks, so enjoy this final day of coverage before our return on January 7, 2013 -- and fear not, your diligent editors will have plenty of other fine content rolling out during the break to pass the time with. Happy holidaze, folks!
First introduced in 1975, the Steadicam launched a film industry revolution by freeing camera operators to shoot moving footage without traditional dolly and tracks.
